Within daily hustle and bustle there is a safe shelter, Caffè Mulassano, a moment of pause nestled under Piazza Castello arcades, whose windows are the ideal screen for observing the city turmoil, except when the coffeehouse ended up on the big screen, as in Mario Soldati and Dario Argento films or Francesco Renga’s videoclip, Aspetto che torni.
The nineteenth-century furniture, perfectly preserved, is designed to be dismantled piece by piece and reassembled everywhere else - like a gentleman of the past sat comfortably in an armchair, but always ready for a new adventure.
